poured a dark yellow hue with a frothy white head which had nice lacing. Slight carbonation present. Aroma was a mix of lemon and apple esters and some yeast. Flavor was tart, and at times over carbonated. still nice.

Bottle from Friar Tucks in Champaign, IL. Pours a hazy golden amber with a one finger white head. Aroma of belgian funk- sourness, lemon, and spice. Medium bodied with a soft texture and subtle prickly carbonation. Flavor has the right balance between tartness, sweetness, cherry, and malt. Medium dry and oaky finish, with a bite of acidity before it goes down. Less aggressive than other flemish sours, but very balanced and easy to drink.

Very interesting, reminded me of a grand cru or sour ale really.
Poured a medium gold with a thin bubbly white head.
Aroma was under-ripe apricot, buttery, Some sour alc. as well. Flavour was intense on the front of the palate with sharp tartness. Middle eased with a bit of malt honey sweetness, then a sour finish that was a bit thin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose that’s mega sourness and follwed by fruit (cherry.) Appearance of straw/golden. Fluffy head that dies quickly. Light mouthfeel that lets sourness, brettemycisis and barrel aging shine. Mid palate has shortlasting sweetness of cherry and quickly goes to a tartness and bitterness associated with orange rind and prickly. A sipper that warmness one up to the many esoteric styles of Belgium. Yum.
